College Football All-America Teams 2011: Jarvis Jones Among First-Team Dawgs

After a disappointing two-year down swing that had many questioning Mark Richt's job security, the Georgia Bulldogs rebounded with a 10-3 season, an SEC East title and a bid in a post-New Year's Day Bowl.

Another sign of Georgia's re-emergence came Wednesday, with most of the country's biggest media outlets releasing their NCAA All-American lists

Three Bulldogs -- TE Orson Charles, LB Jarvis Jones and S Bacarri Rambo -- made at least one first-team list.

Charles, a 6'3 214 junior TE, finished with 44 catches for 572 yards and 5 TD's this season. One of QB Aaron Murray's favorite targets, he made the AFCA (American Football Coaches Association) first-team and the Walter Camp second-team.

Jones, a 6'3 240 redshirt LB who sat out last season after transferring from USC, was a dominant force for the Bulldog defense. He finished with 69 tackles and 13.5 sacks this season, making four first-teams: the AP, FWAA (Football Writers Association of America), the AFCA and Walter Camp.

Rambo, a 6'0 218 junior S, had 53 tackles and 7 INT's this season. He made the AP first-team and the Walter Camp second-team.

Senior OT Cordy Glenn was also named to the AP All-American third team.
